Element Talks / European Design Festival in Warsaw
For 13 years European Design Festival has been taking place each year in a different city of our continent. This time it is going to be Warsaw which for a couple of days will become the European capital of graphic design. The event will take place between 6th and 9th of June and will be abundant with inspiring lectures, exhibitions, workshops, graphic design studio tours, film screenings, as well as formal galas of two competitions for graphic designers. The festival aims to promote European and Polish design and to present the latest tendencies and practices that are worth following. The organizers await both professionals and design professionals searching for inspirations for creative action and time spending.
The multitude of scheduled attractions will let the participants discover the design face of Warsaw, as well as make international contacts which will pay off in the future. As a part of the festival, a number of unique events will be held—with or without an entry fee: There will be a couple of exhibitions devoted to contemporary graphic design in Poland and Europe. The spectators will have a chance to familiarize themselves with e.g. the best designed publications of the year 2018. During the Graphic tours the participants will be able to visit the most interesting design studios in Warsaw and get to know the designers working there. They will also have a chance to see how the designers work and ask them a couple of questions.
The organizers would like to encourage participants to take part in free-of-charge screenings of films devoted to design or designers. They will have a chance to see e.g. “Helvetica” which tells the story about one of the most famous typefaces of the world and the stories of people connected with it. You cannot miss practical workshops which are targeted at both professional designers and amateurs. The participants will familiarize themselves with specific aspects of design and acquire new soft skills.
